If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?

I'm pretty sure the Ranger Sport models come with 16X8 in the later years. Are you asking for use in the Bronco II?

From what I understand, most anything that will work on a Ranger will work on a BII. So, they should be ok. I would double check before you spend the cash since the operative words is “most”.

There are some BII guys here who might know the answer but you might want to check the sister forum that is focused on Broncos. I can’t remember the name of the forum. Maybe one of the other guys can help out or @Jim Oaks can chime in.

Bronco Corral is the other site... I haven't been there in too long. But there is a bunch of info there also.

I think with the smaller wheel opening... back spacing and width come into play more on the early Rangers and BII's.

Most 16" and larger wheels have a GM-style positive offset even if they have a Ford bolt pattern and the tires might rub on the inside. Pro Comp is one of the few 16" wheels with the proper offset for Fords.

I was, on my Jeep. Sold it. I had 16x8 Pro Comp steel wheels, 3 1/2" backspacing, with 32" Goodyear Duratrac. Resulted in about 2 in hes of poke. Good combination and I'd recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone. Easy tread for throwing snow and would plaw rheough 2 ft of snow with ease. I went with 16 inch because that way they're more interchangeable with other vehicles.
